There is a mapping problem regarding the names of several peaks in this area in that the Irish and English names are not matched up. The Irish version of Derrygarriff is given as Péicín, but this name clearly belongs to Peakeen Mountain. The correct Irish version is Doire Gharbh, which has been assigned (erroneously?) on the 1:25,000 map to this lower peak between Moll's Gap and Lough Barfinnihy.   Derrygarriff West Top is the 986th highest place in Ireland.

It has a name!
by Conor74  14 Jan 2014
Well I never knew! Have climbed this a few times at the start or end of a walk either coming from the Peakeen//Derrgarriff sided if parked at Finnihy Lake, or coming from or going to Boughill and parked at Molls Gap. As you can guess from the foregoing, this doesn't lack for parking nearby and access is fairly straightforward, it really is just an outcrop. Be careful if parked at Finnihy Lake, access from that side is about as muddy as I've seen anywhere, and haven't found an obvious way around it. There are also one or two fences coming from either side. If you fancy a scramble there is a neat gully on the south east side overlooking a corry from which a glacier flowed down to Kenmare a long time ago, but getting across to the gully can be tricky enough as one is traversing a steep enough section with no obvious path Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1075/comment/15786/
